  • I have been active in PCUSA churches for more than 25 years. I'm an elder and former deacon and church trustee. I am a Stephen Minister.Recently, I've questioned the concept of the seventh-day sabbath; that is, worshipping on the seventh day, rather than the first; or, Saturday vs Sunday. My first view is to keep the sabbath holy through worship whatever the day. But, the Ten Commandments, I believe, specificy the seventh day. In my study of history, it appears that the Catholic Church made the change to Sunday to repudiate Jewish tradition-not as a result of biblical truth. What is the PCUSA view of this? by Ann on 09/23/2012 at 12:34 p.m.
